    Life-long liberal Kirsten Powers blasts the Left's forced march towards conformity in an exposé of the illiberal war on free speech. No longer champions of tolerance and free speech, the “illiberal Left” now viciously attacks and silences anyone with alternative points of view. Powers asks, “Whatever happened to free speech in America?”

    "A searing and courageous indictment of the growing intolerance of the American left—written with passion and eloquence by one of the nation's most principled and fair-minded liberals. An important book on a subject many are simply too afraid to touch."
    —Charles Krauthammer, Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist and author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Things That Matter

    People like Hitler, Pool Pot, Starlin, and so on, thrived under censorship, that the left seem to want to enforce on us, while giving themselves the right to free speech; the ways of dictators.

    In your country it is an expression of free speech to burn your flag in protest, However conservs will beat you for it. All over the news.

    A lot of conservs in your country think freedom of speech means no rebuttals to what they say. Erm, it doesn't work like that.


    And Florida's banning of the term climate change and global warming...totally the champions of free speech.

    and all an owner of a rinky dink 15 table pizza parlor has to to is say he wouldn't host a gay wedding in his restaurant with an 89 on the last health inspection and who the fuck try to run him out of business?

    For that stupid ass generalization you ought to be compelled to read every fucking post and thread written by Art Deco.

    meninlove saidAnd Florida's banning of the term climate change and global warming...

    Yeah that's a classic example... almost as good as trying to ban the word 'thug'

    If they want to be ignored so badly, just ignore them. Seems like a win-win to me. icon_rolleyes.gif

    There should be a law prohibiting this kind of thread. It's clearly hate speech. You should be in jail for this!
